City of Rome Announces Preliminary 2017 Tax Millage Rates
By Sheree Shore
The City of Rome has released the proposed tax millage rates for 2017. The proposed combined rates for the City Government and City Schools of 27.536 will result in no increase of millage rates from the prior year, but will be 1.19% (.329 mils) over the calculated rollback rate of 27.207.
The estimated City and City school tax for a current $100,000 market valued home would have been $1,101 in 2016, would be estimated at $1,101 for 2017 and at the 2017 rollback rate would be estimated at $1,088.
The City will hold three public hearings on these rates, with the first Public Hearing to be held at the City Commission meeting on Monday July 10, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. Additional Public Hearings will be held on July 18, at 10:00 a.m. and July 24, at 6:30 p.m. All concerned citizens are invited to these public hearings.
